Many of the today's contemporary artists are inspired by the same masters. You'll see the work of master painters emulated in young artists as they develop their own careers that often take wildly different paths. The same is true for students who study under the same teacher, which is the idea of Kirk Hopper's newest exhibition, A Transfer of Spirit – a display of artists who studied with Roger Winter. See the work of David Bates, Suzanne Kelley Clark, John Alexander and several others arists as they celebrate Winter, Professor Emeritus of Painting and Drawing at Southern Methodist University. Winter, who taught his first painting class 53 years ago at the Fort Worth Art Center, built an artistic career of his own, but this exhibition celebrates the influences he's put out into the world as a teacher. See it in its opening reception at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Kirk Hopper Fine Art, 3008 Commerce St. More information is available at kirkhopperfineart.com.
